Emeriau goes on offensive in Broncbusters win over Pratt

Garden City, KS-After some early-season stumbles, the Broncbusters have righted the ship.

On Friday, Remi Emeriau played arguably his best game of the season, scoring twice as Garden City beat Pratt 4-2. It was the Broncbusters third win in their last four matches.

"I knew eventually things would come together," Head Coach Scott Westbrook said.

It took a little time to get Garden City going after Pratt scored the game's first goal in the 28th minute of the first half. The Beavers took a 1-0 lead into the locker room.

But 15 minutes into the second half, Emeriau got the equalizer, rolling a bender past goaltender Louis Sharp. Less than 20 seconds later, Emeriau scored again, to give Garden City (3-5, 2-2) a 2-1 advantage.

Pratt did not go away, evening the score in the 70th minute with a goal from Nathan Wilson.

After that, the Broncbuster defense stiffened while Joel Sanchez and Jose Depaz polished off Garden City's third win of the season.

Sanchez gave the brown and gold the lead for good when he scored with 20 minutes remaining. Depaz proceeded to throw salt on the wound with a goal 12 minutes after that.

"This was a good, hard-fought victory," Westbrook said. "We've got talent on this team, and it's starting to show."

Garden City outshot Pratt 16-7.
